Facade: The last days of Mata Hari

> Continue to more recent data of this production

The story of the legendary exotic dancer and alleged spy Mata Hari in a theatrical songrecital. 
In the time of peace she was hailed as an erotic dancer and loved by the most powerful men of the continent. In wartime she was accused of being a spy and mercilessly executed by the same men. In this theatrical song recital, her story is told by Josse De Pauw on a film screen from the perspective of the many men in (and after) her life. Soprano Claron McFadden and pianist Claire Chevallier offer a rebuttal with music by Mata Hari’s contemporaries and with letters from the infamous dancer herself.
